so a few days ago i posted about a dust collector i saw on craigslist. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/23206
despite having a relatively small shop space, i felt like getting one was a (literally) healthy move on my part, plus it’s something i can grow into with new tool purchases etc. and less time sweeping means more time for projects!
anyway, i went to this guys house, got talking, and we settled on $150 for the DC with assorted ducts and gates etc. i mention i only have a few tools, including a small joiner. he was definelty wrapping up doing stuff in his woodshop, and had moved on to some laser etching thing (which was very cool). next thing i know he’s talking about some other tools he never uses and just hasn’t put on craigslist yet.
next thing i know i’m getting this grizzly planer and the DC for $200.
we dusted off the planer. the motor still runs, but it the height adjustment doesn’t work. it turns the 4 shafts. but make’s some clicking sound like a gear isn’t catching. I’m hoping it’s a small fix and it’s something i can get to this weekend. It’s a G1017
If anyone reading this has any grizzly planer experience or know how, i’d certainly appreciate your 10 cents!
